Having just got 2 degus, I was very impressed by the book. It is written well and organized in a way that you can easily find what you're looking for. We learned a lot from two degu owners but learned far more from the book. I would highly recommend the book to degu owners and for those considering acquiring these very interesting and entertaining pets.
Since I had already spent countless hours on the Internet searching for information on the care of degus, I thought that this book may be a waste of my time. I ordered it anyway (the price was right & afterall it was the first published English book on degus). I was extremely surprised at the amount of information contained in the book. Those who already own degus will not be disappointed, and will be surprised at some of the information (which may be contrary to what some internet sites claim) in it. For those who are new degus owners, or thinking about becoming an owner, I dare say that you should not consider buying such an exotic pet until you have read this book. The book 'Degus' references many scientific studies from which some of the information was gathered. This book will certainly improve your understanding of your pets needs, and the quality of care that you provide them. :)
